Lizzy Bennet's Diary

By Marcia Williams

Published to coincide with the 200th anniversary of Pride and Prejudice, this is a glorious retelling of Jane Austen's most famous novel from the point of view of Lizzy Bennet, its feisty heroine.

The story of Pride and Prejudice, told through Lizzy Bennet's secret diary. A beautifully detailed and completely fresh take on one of the best-loved stories in English literature. Readers will feel as though they've stepped into Austen's world: the book is packed with Lizzy's drawings, pressed flowers, ribbons from her bonnet, hand-written notes to fold out and read, dance cards, invitations, and even a letter from Mr Darcy...

Customer reviews

Reviews

'An interactive and entertaining brand new take on the classic tale . . . offers a perfect opportunity to introduce young readers to Jane Austen’s work and world.' Library Mice

'Another enchanting confection of charmingly naive illustrations, doodles, fold-out letters, menus and programmes. Williams convincingly captures the idiom and cadence of the language of the time, and readers yet to encounter the real Elizabeth Bennet will be introduced to an appropriately feisty heroine as Lizzy. . . Winningly, Williams has also thought up names for Mr Darcy’s four dogs' Books for Keeps

'An easy and enjoyable pastiche of Austen’s . . . its special delight lies in the illustrations, Elizabeth’s whimsical marginalia and wry visual commentary on her world' The School Librarian
